Dokumenter ini merekam perjalanan seorang anak kecil, yang juga adalah biografi Jan Willem van Dam, sang sutradara. Kisah filem ini adalah mimpi dan harapan sang ibu terhadap anaknya untuk mencari makna hidup dari banyak tempat dan perjumpaan dengan orang-orang.

Perjalanan Van Dam juga menjadi renungan akan gejolak politik dan kulturil beberapa negara Eropa dan Asia. Pembuat filem mengambil beberapa tokoh dari masing-masing negara, sebagai representasi dan alusi pernyataan sosial politiknya. Dalam beberapa adegan, muncul semacam interupsi mengenai kebimbangan antara perihal filem dan perihal kenyataan, termasuk di dalamnya perkara kapan filem dimulai.

This documentary records the journey of a boy, which also serves as a biography of the filmmaker, Jan Willem van Dam. The story of the film is a collage of hopes and dreams of his mother, who encouraged her son to pay attention to lessons in meanings hidden in places and brief encounters with people he met.

Van Dam’s journey, through some clever layerings, becomes an amalgam of reflections on the political and cultural struggle of several Asian and European nations. The filmmakers picks various figures from each nation, as the mouthpiece of his political statements. In several scenes, the film takes a turn into the realm of ambiguity, questioning the real and the imaginary, and also questioning when a film truly starts.
